Students engage hands-on in our 626-acre outdoor classroom, encompassing livestock barns, fruit and vegetable plots, pastures, year-round greenhouses, forests, educational gardens, and rocky shoreline. Programs change with the season and with what’s happening on the farm.
Due to the nature of Wolfe’s Neck Center being a working farm, tours are limited to 40 participants, which includes all students, chaperones, and parents.
Our field trips take place rain or shine! There is indoor space in the unheated barns for activities, but please make sure students come dressed for the weather.
Students, teachers, and chaperones should all wear clothes to be outside, whatever the season. Field trips rarely go inside any buildings but our unheated barns. It’s also a good idea to wear boots or sneakers you wouldn’t mind getting mud, or a bit of manure on (It is a farm, after all!).
You are more than welcome to eat your lunch here on the farm. We cannot guarantee a covered space, but we have lots of picnic tables and benches around the property. We do ask for groups to pack out all their trash. Fridge space is unfortunately not available.
We do our best to try and tailor our field trips for your students to get the most out of their experience. Please complete this form with the date, number of students, and what type of experience you’re requesting, and we can do our best to accommodate you.
Our field trip curriculum typically runs for 1 to 1.5 hours. If you are looking for a more in-depth day experience, see our Educational Group TourEducational Group Tours offerings to learn more.
